Invokana is a prescription medicine used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. which is a division of Johnson & Johnson under license from Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation. Janssen claims that Invokana is proven to more effectively lower A1c levels in type 2 diabetics than other drugs in its class, like Januvia.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is now warning users of Invokana that this medicine may lead to ketoacidosis, a condition which causes the users body to produce extremely high levels of blood borne acids called ketones which can cause significant injury to the user in the form of diabetic come and require hospitalization and, in some cases, heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure or other injury and death.
